    I think this is white hat....


    anyways i was wondering if anyone had a good place/network to pay bloggers for product reviews or website reviews that had ACTUAL traffic that reads the articles. This isn't for rankings but for getting to my clients demographic.

    Let me know

    Have you actually used this? A friend told me about it but also said it was just a link dump for rankings and didn't get actual traffic.

    You have to evaluate the sites you're planning to post to one by one. What I would recommend is Googling for blogs in the client's market segment and looking up their contact information and make them an offer in exchange for their review.

    Also, paid reviews as you're describing are not considered white hat and are against Google's TOS. You can find this in Matt Cutt's webmaster videos as well as in Google's guidelines.

    There's also new laws which require a FTC Disclosure statements for paid endorsements of a product or service.

    Thank you for this response - i guess this can be moved to black hat...

    I really don't want this for ranking or indexing though but i can see how MC would view it differently...

    i just want to find my clients demographic and speak to it through a sponsorship. I was hoping to avoid the manual way of going about this as it sounds awful.

    So the answer is there's not platform that can do this type of thing.

    Thanks.
